Wow. Some seriously thin skins in this thread. I think the guide is terrific; to the point, straightforward, and cuts through a lot of the jargon and mumbo-jumbo that many noobs don't understand -- and aren't interested in. A refreshing, "Just tell me how to most easily root my damn phone" guide. Kudos to the OP.
Perhaps I missed some pre-edit issues to which the two cranky-posters are referring, but from what's there now, I have a really hard time seeing how anyone could possibly take issue with the tone or content of the OP.
